Anderson advances to semifinals
Maintains point lead

TOPEKA, Kan. (May 28, 2006) -- Greg Anderson drove his KB Racing LLC, Summit Racing Equipment Pro Stock Pontiac to a semifinal finish at this weekend's 18th annual NHRA O'Reilly Summer Nationals at HPT -- Heartland Park Topeka.

In the opening round, with a .027-second advantage, Anderson won on a holeshot over Mike Edwards. It was a 6.832-second pass for Anderson, while Edwards recorded a 6.814.

Against Warren Johnson in the quarterfinals, Anderson was out first and led the entire length of the HPT quarter-mile running an elapsed time of 6.826 seconds.

Moving to the semifinals Anderson was matched against the other member of the Johnson family -- Kurt. Johnson was out first at the green and rode that advantage to the win light over Anderson.

"Once again, I got beat on a holeshot. As I said in Columbus, "There is no excuse for that,'" recounted Anderson. "We had the car going in the right direction, even with the wind and heat. I think that we had a shot at the finals but we'll never know. When we get to Chicago, I need to be at the top of my driving game and this Summit Racing Pontiac needs to be quick and fast with both the race and the King Demon Crown on the line there here. There's a lot of money to be won."

The good news from Topeka is that Anderson maintains his lead in the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock point standings.
